There are an estimated 850 pieces in the catalogue (including versions offered in different transpositions), mostly transcribed by Michael from original sources in libraries all over Europe. These will be verified and re-catalogued over the next few years.

Croce, Giovanni, Benedictus Dominus Deus…Benedicti qui pugnant. EMP0808 £3.00
ISMN M-2056-0808-8
A text found in no other setting, its belligerent - indeed pugnacious - character makes it apparent that it was written either for the annual Lepanto commemoration, or to celebrate the Habsburg victory at Sisak in 1593. The source collection, Croce's first book of double-choir motets of 1594, was dedicated to Raimondo Della Torre, the Ambassador to Venice of the Holy Roman Empire.

ISMN M-2056-1008-1
A text found in no other setting, its belligerent - indeed pugnacious - character makes it apparent that it was written either for the annual Lepanto commemoration, or - most likely - to celebrate the Habsburg victory at Sisak in 1593. The source collection, Croce's first book of double-choir motets of 1594, was dedicated to Raimondo Della Torre, the Ambassador to Venice of the Holy Roman Empire. Here offered as a set of parts (each choir consisting of cornett, 2 sackbuts and bass sackbut or curtal/dulcian) to be played with the voices.

Croce, Giovanni, Missa Sopra la Battaglia EMP0745 £7.40
General Use - Mass Ordinary ISMN M-2056-0745-6
One of the three masses for double choir. Like the Missa Percussit Saul mille, this setting was probably composed to be sung on the anniversary of a military victory. It is of course a parody on Janequin's famous piece. In this version the mass is presented without the 'Partidura' organ part.
Alternative version(s):
EMP0878 Original pitch with organ
Croce, Giovanni, Missa Sopra la Battaglia EMP0878 £5.80
Secular ISMN M-2056-0878-1
One of the three masses for double choir. Like the Missa Percussit Saul mille, this setting was probably composed to be sung on the anniversary of a military victory. It is of course a parody on Janequin's famous piece. This version includes the 'Partidura' organ part.

Ingegneri, Marco Antonio (Marc'Antonio), Super flumina Babilonis EMP1089 £3.00
General Use - Psalm-Motet ISMN M-2056-1089-10
In our continuing series of pieces by this shamefully neglected composer, this is a lovely setting of the familiar text.
